not something that is so popular in washington. we're nine days away now from the forced spending cuts that are going to take effect, and while we may be short on time, we are not short on blame. president obama for one was busy today with no less than eight local television interviews. the president, according to the white house, telling his side of the story directly to the american people, blaming republicans in this interview with wcvb boston. >> the way this arose was back in 2011, the republicans were threatening to default on the full faith and credit of the united states. and we had to avoid that. the hope was that they would use this year and a half to come up with a sensible deficit reduction package. now, we've reduced $2.5 trillion on our deficit. we've got about $1.5 trillion more to go. there's a better way to do it than this, but the key is for them to go ahead and put forward the balanced, responsible approach that will avoid these cuts. >> he wants them to put forth the approach. john boehner, meanwhile with, is the them, sort of. he made his case directly to the peopl
about showing once again they're willing to fight obama? >> that's a component of it. i think zachary's exactly right. you also didn't see the markets freak out over the fiscal cliff because we've sort of stopped believing the crying wolf of washington politicians and a sense of what -- if you look at the fiscal cliff eastbound if there were some deal being worked out which there isn't that boehner would have a hard time getting the votes for anything. barely got the votes for a sort of symbolic sequester replacement plan around the time of the fiscal cliff deal and so i think that especially having in their perception caved on the fiscal cliff and then having put off the debt ceiling, the republicans really feel like this is something they have to stand their ground on. >> chris, karl rove superpac has an ad out of bom's mess. let me play it and get your reaction to this. >> a bad idea. are you willing to see a bunch of first responders lose their job. teachers laid off. air traffic controllers and airport security. this is hardship on a lot of people. scene zone yours. middle class

to engage in over the past decade. obama, unfortunately, comes in with very little background in foreign policy, never paid much attention to it, served in washington for only two years because i was a very enthusiastic supporter and remain, but i think those of us who looked at him knew national security could be a problem, and when he appointed the secretary of state for domestic reasons, and and pointed the secretary of defense for domestic reasons, and appointed a retired marine general to be the national adviser who lasted a year, and put leon panetta, and i know he's one of your neighbors in california, but he was captured by the operational mentality in the cia after being in the building no more than a month. this was an extremely weak national security team. obama also, i think, was rolled by the military, that's how you got to serge of forces. i think he realized he was had by the military, and i think that's important. one of the reasons i'm a little more optimistic about this second term is i think this is a wiser man in terms of foreign policy, and if you look at the fact th
